Swiss Post :: For the Most Discerning Customers in the World

Swiss Post, for the Most Discerning Customers in the World.  Maybe that’s true, or maybe not.  But, there’s no doubt they do things a little differently than in the US.

Until I had to send a signed contract to SwissCom, our internet provider, I hadn’t mailed a single item in Switzerland.    We had read that basic bills can be paid at the post office and the idea of trying to figure out how to ask and what forms to bring has kept me from making my first trip.  My sweet next-door-neighbor Astrid gave me the low-down on how to mail a letter after watching me stare in puzzlement at our mailboxes for a good five minutes.  There is no little flag or clothespin to attach a letter.  No drop box in sight.  The closest mailing station like the one above is down the block.

And with Swiss efficiency here is how the mail arrives at our door Monday – Saturday.  A sweet little motorcycle with a cart attached to the back!  I suspect that up in the mountains they use a different vehicle, but each day it brings a smile to our faces to hear the bike approaching.
